Publicada em

Hyper-converged infrastructures are the rising stars in data centers. What is behind this trend, what are the key benefits and what does it mean in practice? Is hyper-converged always superior to classic IT architectures? For which use cases is hyper-converged strongly recommended or even a must? And how does hyper-convergence fit into the Software-Defined Data Center? Let’s have a deeper look to find the answers...

  9. 9. 8 © Copyright 2017 FUJITSU Architectures in comparison Classical  Servers, LAN, storage, SAN  LCM for multiple components (different LC)  2 separate networks to maintain  HW-defined  Scalability by adding multiple components, primarily separately  Storage activities are separated from servers  Established for many years Hyper-converged  Servers (storage included), LAN  LCM for less components  More powerful LAN required  SW-defined  Scalability by adding servers, primarily linearly (compute & storage)  Servers are involved in storage activities  To be considered when sizing compute resources  Entered the market some 3 years ago
  10. 10. 9 © Copyright 2017 FUJITSU What do these differences mean for you? Classical  To be used for general purposes  Physical, virtual, multi-hypervisor  HW dependence, primarily related to storage  Well-known SW licensing (e.g. DB)  Higher operational complexity  Possibly higher HW cost, but lower SW cost  Mainly well established vendors Hyper-converged  Less usable for general purposes  Virtualization is quasi a must  SW dependence (related to virtualization SW)  Commercial restrictions (e.g. DB licensing)  Lower operational complexity  Possibly higher SW cost, but lower HW cost  Established vendors and newcomers
